If dirt and dust are blowing out anywhere that they shouldn't be, it's a sure sign that something's plugged farther on up the line. You'll need to disassemble the unit and clear the clog before anything will go through to the dirt cup. Also, as long as you're going to be taking it apart, check all the filters. This is a notoriously neglected part of bagless vacuums, and a very large part of why they start to lose the initial level of vacuum power. Clean the ones you can clean, replace the ones you can't. Walmart and Meijer's are a couple of places where you might find replacements.

My new Hoover Wet & Dry Vacuum Cleaner-1800w sucks dust from the carpet but it also blow abt 50% of the dust out into the room. Everything is covered in a layer of white dust. The hose is fitted 100%


It seems it must be blowing out from somewhere. Try to figure out where by feeling for air blowing to try to determine where it's coming from and why.

Vacuum is spewing dust out of the front vent! We have the Dirt Devil 12 amp bagless upright. Hoses are clear, brushes turn, everything fine except dirt blows OUT instead of going into canister. How


Hi! We actually don't recommend opening the motor compartment. It sounds like there may be a clog somewhere in the vacuum that you are unaware of. Please try following the steps below.

  • Remove the hose from the vacuum from both ends and check it for clogs.
  • Lay your vacuum face down, remove the bottom guard and brush-roll
  • Use a wooden spoon or something similar to help break up and remove any clogs from the lower hose.
  • Check and clean all the filters on the vacuum. If they are really dirty they may need to be replaced.
Hope this helps, if not we can be reached here on Fixya, Facebook.com/dirtdevil or Twitter @DirtDevil

Eureka vacuum blowing dust into the air


Check the leak (where the dust come from); maybe you need to tighten or reseat one or more part in that area.

My Dyson blows air out the front of the ball.


Hi Nancy,

Thank you for your inquiry. After passing through the washable HEPA filter, air exits the DC25 Animal through the vented filter cover located on the ball of your machine. This is a normal function of your vacuum.

However, if you have additional questions or concerns about your DC25, please contact us at 1-866-693-9766 (US) or 0800 298 0298 (UK).

Best wishes,

Jessica

I've put in new bag and filters and there is dust coming out of the air vents. Where am I going wrong.


If a previous bag burst then it may just be the residual dust from that. I suggest you start by taking out the bag and filter and purging by switching on for a minute (don't actually vacuum with it and take it outside before you switch it on)
Eventually there will be no dust coming out then replace the bag and filter and if it is still blowing dust out then you will need to look for another problem.
I hope I have been of help but please do not hesitate to ask if you have any further questions.
I appreciate your vote if you appreciate my reply.

Take to Walmart, plug it in and start to vacuum THEIR floors!
Try removing the dust container and look for anything blocking airflow including the HEPA filter. Make sure the dust cup has a seal where it joins the vacuum. The fix is probably simple, but it shouldn't be up to you to do so!

Blows dust


i had this trouble and it turned out someone in my household had tossed out the filter with the rest of the dirt. you may have lost yours along the way since it's relatively easy to throw out.
